Peter Cook International was formed in 1977, and whilst its founder has now retired, the company continues to serve the upholstery and bedding industry as a stockist of components and sundries. PCI recently entered its 10th year of trading since the company changed ownership and moved its head office to Leeds in 2005.
Martin Cave, general manager, comments: “2014 was a fantastic and exciting year for PCI. We refreshed our company brand in line with our ambitions for the future. As part of this change we issued our first paper-based catalogue in several years, which has been well received by customers new and old. The catalogue was followed later in the year with the launch of a completely new website, which we believe is market leading.
“We have invested in extra warehousing to accommodate an increased stockholding of key lines, to ensure overnight availability for our customers when required. We experienced significant growth in 2013-2014, yet maintained our flexible and sensible approach to trading with our customers. The teams at both sites have been absolutely fantastic managing this growth – and PCI are looking forward to continuing to develop new products and create more choice for consumers.”
